UTT Says Goodbye to Angelo Codevilla

by John D. Guandolo

Over the weekend of August 20, 2021, Angelo Codevilla died of injuries sustained after he was his by a car driven by a drunk 25 year old woman.

Angelo Codevilla was arguably one of the greatest minds in America on what it takes to maintain America’s Constitutional Republic, the role of government, and why America’s leaders should follow the example of the Founding Fathers on governance and foreign policy.

I was blessed and honored to learn at the feet of Dr. Angelo Codevilla as a Claremont Lincoln Fellow during the summer of 2011, hosted in California by the Claremont Institute.

From my perspective, what made Angelo great was his ability to teach and share ideas and concepts that were simple and effective because they were proven over the centuries.

Charles Kesler introduces Dr. Angelo Codevilla as follows:

“Angelo Codevilla is a Senior Fellow of the Claremont Institute, Professor Emeritus of International Relations at Boston University, and an inveterate contributor to the Claremont review a books. Prior to his academic career, Dr. Codevilla served as a senior staff member of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee for almost a decade, and was the principal author of the 1980 Presidential Transition Report on Intelligence prepared for president-elect Reagan. Codevilla has been a trenchant critic of American foreign policy from the Cold War through the “War on Terror” arguing vigorously from the standpoint of the axioms of the older and more successful American foreign policy of the 18th and 19th centuries. One might go further and say he argues from the timeless understanding of statecraft that goes back to Machiavelli and more capaciously, Aristotle. His books include several classics, like The Character of Nations: How Politics Makes and Breaks Prosperity, Family, and Civility, and, with Paul Seabury, War: Ends and Means. His latest volumes are Advice to War Presidents: A Remedial Course in Statecraft, and The Ruling Class: How They Corrupt America and What We Can Do About It.

If you are believe America’s founding principles and Constitutional Republic can and must be restored, Angelo Codevilla’s books and lectures must be included in your journey as a Patriot.

The following comes from the inset of Angelo’s book, Advice to War Presidents:

“Of Woodrow Wilson’s successors, only the first three escaped the role of war president. While these leaders have committed America to the pursuit of peace, they have involved us in seemingly endless wars. The American foreign policy establishment’s several “schools” have jointly misguided our presidents with myths that have worsened these conflicts: that foreign peoples always share American ideals; that peace is simple the absence of conflict rather than the tenuous result of victories; that diplomacy is a substitute for force; and that wealth is everyone’s overriding goal. Our establishment’s very language obscures reality. The result is that even as American forces win battle after battle, we leave ourselves and the world less secure.”

Angelo was a strong proponent of follow the foreign policy examples of America’s Founding Fathers. During a lecture series with Charles Kesler on The American Mind, Dr. Codevilla stated:

“The founders foreign policy was a model of realism…very well tied to reality. It was based on the seeking of a proper end, namely peace, and on the basic distinction between our business and other’s business, and a determination to guard our business by all possible means, including war. War was taken seriously, and that is really that. If you have these fundamentals, you can go on to other things…what is really important to us is to remain Americans, to remain as blessedly distinct from the rest of the world as we always were.”

One of Angelo’s best articles was written in 2019 entitled “Who in the Hell Do They Think They Are?” which dealt with the ruling class’ Admiral McRaven and military elites in general. Read that article here.

The death of Angelo Codevilla leaves a vacuum in America. It is a vacuum that can only be filled by Patriots who deeply understand America’s Founding Principles, the example of our Founding Fathers, and the willingness to do whatever is necessary to re-establish our foundation in law and government.

Understanding the Threat offers our condolences to everyone who knew and loved Angelo Codevilla, and we pray Americans will honor him, by carrying on his great and noble work.

Deus autem omnipotens benedicat hoc magnum est homo.

      (Sep. 20. 2021) — “The video interview can be viewed here and is “Part 1” of a new PV series.

      According to America’s Frontline Doctors (AFDLS) in a lawsuit filed in July against DHHS, the number of adverse coronavirus vaccine reactions is many times that which appears in VAERS, according to an insider “whistleblower” who came forward.

      According to cardiologist and infectious-disease specialist Dr. Peter A. McCullough, the number of deaths reported to have occurred in vaccine recipients became unacceptable at 150 last winter. As of September 10, 2021, VAERS reported that number to be 14,925 and the number of permanent disabilities at 19,210, including foreign vaccine administration; total “adverse events” totaled more than 700,000.”

    • Look At What Came Out Of A Recently Covid “Vaxxed” Patient’s Lungs: A “String Of Attached Blood Clots…” Do You Still Think Those Human Engineered Genocidal Bioweapon Fatal Poisonous Covid Non-Vaccine Jabs Are Harmless?

      By Tim Brown
      October 3, 2021

      “What you see in the image above is what came out of the patient’s lungs, “a string of attached clots,” the nurse informed us.

      She also added that the patient was fully “vaxxed” and admitted with COVID+.

      The RN is also battling hospital bureaucrats attempting to do our fascist government’s bidding.

      She is definitely one that is not interested in taking the experimental shots and is willing to take that stand against the tyranny, which we salute her for doing!

      The nurse also informed us that she is spending her days off researching possible ways to counteract the side effects of the shots.

      The Sons of Liberty’s health and wellness expert Kate Shemirani has given some supplements that people can take that should help those who have taken the shots.

      However, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny warns that once this is in the body, there is no known way to detox from it completely, at least not at this time.

      Last week on The Sons of Liberty radio show, I interviewed a lab assistant at a North Carolina major medical facility and she was unlawfully forced into the experimental shot, even though she had a religious and medical exemption due to the fact she has cystic fibrosis. She suffered an anaphylaxious reaction within five minutes of getting the shot.

      This is serious business people and if you are listening to lying politicians, the Mockingbird media and incompetent health professionals about this shot, then do yourself a favor and simply wait.

      If you are threatened with termination for not taking this experimental shot, understand that your employer is in violation of the Nuremberg Code, federal and state laws and you can sue them. Here’s some help in that area.

  3. It’s not only drunks behind the wheel these days. For example, mass experimental vaccinations still have many unknown side effects. Multiply that by how many people are behind a vehicle and it is a recipe for disaster (including pilots).

    • Meet the Only Democrat to Vote Against Nancy Pelosi’s Bill Legalizing Abortions Up to Birth

      By Micaiah Bilger | Sept. 25, 2021 | Washington, DC

      “House Democrat leaders portrayed the bill as a mere “codification” of Roe v. Wade into federal law, but the legislation goes far beyond Roe by eliminating restrictions on abortions that the Supreme Court ruling allows.

      Pro-life leaders nicknamed the legislation the Abortion Without Limits Up to Birth Act. They said it would erase basically all restrictions on abortion and prevent states from enacting even modest protections for unborn babies. Limits on late-term abortions and bans on sex-selection abortions would be gone, and taxpayers would be forced to pay for the killing of unborn babies in abortions up to birth if it passes.”

      Pelosi’s Archbishop: Pelosi’s Abortion Bill is What You’d Expect ‘from a Satanist’

      ‘Any reasonable person with a basic sense of morality and inkling of decency cannot but shudder in horror’

      “One Catholic Bishop has come out strongly against an abortion bill, and he’s not holding back, calling it “child sacrifice.”

      Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, issued a statement that many view as a rebuke of Nancy Pelosi, who hails from the Archbishop’s diocese.

      The bill addressed in Cordileone’s statement is the “Women’s Health Protection Act” (HR 3755), which passed the House last week. The bill would recognize a “statutory right” to abortions, and would do away with conscience protections for health care workers who do not wish to participate in life-ending procedures. The bill would also prohibit almost any kind of limitation on abortion such as waiting periods and ultrasounds, and would prevent states from restricting abortion. Its political opponents have aptly labeled it the “Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act.”

      The Archbishop did not mince words. “It is especially shameful that any self-professed Catholic would be implicated in such an evil, let alone advocate for it. […] This proposed legislation is nothing short of child sacrifice, and clearly in reaction, among other things, to the recently passed Texas Heartbeat bill. […] Indeed, HR 3755 is surely the type of legislation one would expect from a devout Satanist, not a devout Catholic,” Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco said.”

  5. “I’m a devout Catholic.” Nancy Pelosi cites her “Catholic” Christian faith while she defends trying to force the American U.S. taxpayers to go along with her evil tyrannical depraved crimes against humanity and GOD, and daily serial lies.

    Nancy Pelosi is inciting the Wrath of ALMIGHTY GOD on America and on the world. Pelosi’s public crimes against humanity and ALMIGHTY GOD must be immediately removed and stopped by the U.S. People.

  6. Have You Ever Noticed That Justice Never Applies To The Corrupt In Washington D.C.?

    By Bradlee Dean
    Sept. 27, 2021

    “He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the Lord.” – Proverbs 17:15.

    Corruption to high heaven is coming from those who are to represent the American people and this, day in and day out, week in and week out, month after month and year after year (Psalm 84:16; Isaiah 59), and somehow or another, the law never ever applies to them.”

    […]

    “Americans are under the judgment of God for failing to deal with the corrupt in keeping His judgments in establishing righteousness and peace within the gates (Isaiah 26:9).

    They do this by blaming everyone else for what it is that they are guilty of doing and this is going to continue until Americans, under God, put a halt to all of it (1 John 5:3)!”
